Hamradio: When I was 12 years old, I got my first shortwave-receiver. I listened very interested to the incoming signals, especially to the ham frequencies. I never forgot those first experiences, licenced in 1980 and got my first call DG6YBI. In 2003 I examined additional in CW and got class A as DF2QZ. I am interested in DXing and collecting references of IOTA, lighthouses, WFF, castles and more in SSB, CW, RTTY, BPSK, D-Star and DMR. I am one of the main operators of the clubstation DK0HN in contesting and special events.
Private: I was born on the 3th July 1952 in Herten, a small town at the northern border of the ruhr-area. This area is big industrial zone in the center of germany, which is well known for its coal mines. At the end of the 80s Herten had been the biggest coalmining town in Europe including 3 coalmines. After school visit, I apprenticed at a coal mine named "Ewald" in Herten. After the study of electrical engineering I came back to "Ewald", where I practiced for at least 30 years in underground mining as a ventilation officer, mainly responsible for electrical measurement, analysis, data storage and safety.
Hope to catch you soon on the frequencies or in contest
with best regards from
